Russell Westbrook Close To Breaking 51-Year-Old Triple-Double Record

Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook had his eighth straight triple-double, and Oklahoma City rolled past the Grizzlies 117-95 on Thursday night.

Westbrook finished with 15 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds. He now has the longest triple-double streak of his career and is one short of Wilt Chamberlain’s NBA record of nine straight set in 1968.

Westbrook had two previous streaks of seven triple-doubles, both during his MVP-winning 2016-17 season, and Jordan had seven consecutive triple-doubles during the 1988-89 season.

Westbrook can tie Chamberlain on Saturday when the Thunder take on the Houston Rockets.
